Planet Earth viewed through a bird’s eye

Para celebrar el Día de la Tierra, Benjamin Grant, el fundador de Daily Overview, ha elegido cinco imágenes espectaculares de la tierra vista desde el aire en las que con una belleza impresionante se muestra el impacto a veces positivo a veces negativo que los humanos hemos provocado en ella. ¿Tú con cuál te quedas?

Edson, Kansas (EE.UU.)

Edson

Vista aérea de los campos de riego en Edson, Kansas, en EE.UU. Los círculos de la imagen son ni más ni menos que los aspersores eléctricos que giran 360 grados propulsados por motores eléctricos. “Éste es una mis imágenes favoritas porque fue en parte gracias a estos círculos perfectos que me llamaron la atención que comprendí que este proyecto era posible”.

 Hagadera, Campo de refugiados de Dadaab (Kenia)

Dadaab

Hagadera es el mayor campo de refugiados de Dadaab, en el norte de Kenia, acogiendo a más de 100.000 de los 400.000 somalies refugiados en el asentamiento de Dadaab. “Creo que esta es una de las vistas generales más importantes y poderosos que he creado para el proyecto. La imagen tiene la capacidad de captar la atención por sus colores vibrantes y patrones fascinantes, pero también nos lleva a un nivel más significativo que nos permite comprender mejor qué está pasando en diferentes áreas de nuestro planeta”.

Eixample, Barcelona (España)

Eixample

Se trata de una vista aérea del distrito del Eixample de Barcelona, diseñado por Ildefons Cerdá (1815-1876) y caracterizado por una cuadrícula perfecta de apartamentos con patios interiores. “Desde un punto de vista arquitectónico, me encanta que esta visión general nos permita comprender cómo el plan urbano de una ciudad es la que le da forma y cómo ésta afecta tanto el movimiento humano como a la interacción social”.

Puerto de Rotterdam (Países Bajos)

En la imagen se ven los enormes barcos contenedores del puerto de Rotterdam, uno de los más activos del mundo entre 1962 y 2002, hasta que fue superado por otros como los de Singapur y Shanghai.  “Me encanta la belleza y la coloración que resulta de la complejidad de estos sistemas que nuestra especie ha desarrollado. También hay algo mágico en la búsqueda de la belleza en esta escena ya que no es un lugar donde uno suele buscar un hermoso paisaje. Sin embargo, cuando lo miramos de esta manera, es bastante impresionante”.

Jacksonville, Florida (EE.UU.)
